About Liposuction

Platinum Plastic Surgery offers the most advanced methods to effectively eliminate fat from areas of concern on the body. Lipo, or liposuction, is a body enhancement surgery that reduces pockets of fat from the flanks, tummy, buttocks, and thighs to create a trimmer appearance. Dr. Chris Costa believes that liposuction is an art and is a process of not only removing fat but sculpting the left over tissue to give an amazing result. Dr. Costa uses only the most advanced technology and techniques to sculpt the body and safely remove the fat. Liposuction surgery at Platinum Plastic Surgery can be combined to treat multiple parts of the body. When we see you for your consultation, at Platinum Plastic Surgery in Las Vegas, NV, Dr. Costa will assess areas of your body you wish to address so you can attain your cosmetic surgery goals. We want you to feel and look amazing.

Ideal Candidates

Fat removal surgery is a terrific treatment for both women and men who are at an ideal weight but have troublesome areas of fat that are difficult to reduce with even the most healthy lifestyle. Those interested in liposuction should have healthy skin because liposuction is not a treatment for stretched-out skin. It's also important to know that liposuction is not a solution for weight loss. At the time of your consult for surgery, Dr. Costa will review with you your goals and make a personalized treatment plan to help you to look your best. 

Surgical Technique

This treatment is completed in an outpatient setting using general anesthesia. A small knick is made in the skin so a cannula can be inserted. A cannula is a special tool that makes it easier to work loose the fatty tissue that is being vacuumed out. After the fat deposits have been eliminated, Dr. Chris Costa will take the time to go back over each area to ensure that the tissue appears natural and smooth out any irregular or unnatural areas. The small incisions on the skin are then meticulously closed. Based on the amount of sections being treated, your procedure may take several hours. In the separate area for recovery, your post-op nurse will assist you with managing any discomfort and look after your treated areas until you are discharged.

What to Expect

You may need to stay at home for recovery from liposuction surgery for several weeks based on the amount of sections treated and the amount of fat removed. It's typical to have bruising and swelling for one or two weeks after surgery. The most important thing to do following any surgery is to give your body time to heal and recover. When you decide to go back to your job after your surgery, you should remember to minimize stress and strenuous activity. To increase your strength and stamina, try walking and light workouts as recommended by Dr. Costa. Remember, you may notice some improvements soon after your surgery, but it will take around 2 – 3 months until your new body contour and shape is complete.
